No Apology

noapology-mittromney

Whatever your political inclination, it’s always funny to check up on pre-election cash-in books by presidential candidates of the past. “No Apology”, Mitt Romney’s paean-to-himself, checks in at $3.21 for the hardcover.

The John Kerry title “Call To Service” is available for as little as $0.01.

But my favorite failed-president book is Bob Dole: A Pictorial History Of A Kansan. The publishers were like “Fuck the words, you don’t read words. We got pictures. Bob Dole.”

Sex World Records

This book would have some potential if it weren’t full of entries like “In 1954, a man ejaculated 15 ml.” That’s all it says on the topic, no name, no source.

I’m sure the contents of this book were scraped together from a few websites and condensed into a crummy Kindle book in a couple of days, but I’d like to imagine that the author compiled it from his own research, hours and hours of knocking on doors, asking people “So, ever have a really large nude wedding? No? Okay, how about a… (looks at paper) anal gangbang with over 40 participants? No? Okay, thanks for your time.”

(If you’re in the mood for more unverifiable “sex world records”, there is, as always, the “look inside” link.)

Two-dollar bill

This two-dollar bill costs $9.98. In fact, there are a ton of two-dollar bills being sold online for inflated prices.

Most banks will give you a two-dollar bill for exactly two dollars, if you want one. If you want a whole bunch, they can usually get you as many as you want with some advance notice. They’re cool as long as you don’t become that smug guy who pushes them on idiot teens in big-box stores and then sneers “IT’S LEGAL TENDER. BET YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT VINYL RECORDS ARE EITHER.”
